Our interpretation of efficiency is a system that works only when it is needed, and then does so in a particularly effective way. Whereas a conventional hydraulically assisted steering system draws engine power continuously, the electric motor of the electromechanical system in the Cayman models uses energy only when you actually steer. As a result, fuel consumption is reduced and the absence of hydraulic fluid eliminates the need for servicing the system. These two advantages are also beneficial to the environment.
A variable steering ratio preserves the precise and direct steering response associated with the typical Porsche steering feel. This intelligent system filters out unwanted shocks from the road and actively assists steering inputs under braking on road surfaces with varying grip.
Available as an option, speed-sensitive Power steering Plus facilitates manoeuvring and parking for even greater driving comfort.
